Summary

Memoir, intercontinental cycling adventure, music guide, Cadence is the debut book by ABC Classic FM's Emma Ayres. Accompanied by Vita, her steadfast bicycle, and her violin, Aurelia, Emma Ayres cycles her way from England to Hong Kong. But this is also a journey through the keys - and the music that has inspired, shaped and provided refuge for Emma: Beethoven quartets, Mahler symphonies, Brahms sonatas, Bach suites ... It is a book of questions too: How does the instrument you play reveal who you are as a person? Should you tell the serious Pakistani chap who has just welcomed you into the men's quarters of his house that you're not quite who he thinks you are...? Provocative, intelligent, surprising and funny, Cadence is a delight from one of Australia's best-loved broadcasters.
